Power of 10. Natasha Dudina, a cancer survivor, artist and graphic designer shares her story of recovery and how she found out that when people come together to fight for a good cause, nothing’s impossible.
At the end of a hard day packed with cancer treatments and medical procedures mothers of the children in our care feel exhausted. But you know that a mothers love knows no limits. And our mothers carry on smiling through the tears and keep doing all they can to save the most precious what they have – their children.
The story of Nastya Zerova, a girl from the little town of Gubakh in Perm Krai, can be called nothing but amazing. All manner of remarkable things happened to Nastya and her mother Vera thanks to the acute myeloblastic leukaemia Nastya was diagnosed with in 2008.
Galya Bolshova has had to face leukaemia twice. But she didnt give up, and emerged victorious from the battle. Today, Galya has graduated from university and works as a manager.
Anya Sorokina was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia, one of the worst bone marrow diseases, when she was the only child in her family. Now she is a healthy young lady and a happy sister to four siblings.
Once, Anya’s parents Olga and Alexei only dreamt of having a single child, but Anya’s disease changed everything.
Viliam had gone through treatment for leukaemia with the support of Podari Zhizn, and tells us where he gets his inspiration and his energy boost.
The twins Liza and Katya Kartishov became even closer when Katya fell ill with aplastic anaemia. Luckily, Katyas salvation came in the form of a bone marrow transplant, with her sister Liza as the donor. And today, they tell about surviving cancer.
At 9 years old, Nastya knows that some illnesses can kill. She’s already spent half a year being treated for nephroblastoma. We came to see Nastya in hospital and found out that on top of the treatment she’s been finding time for art and studying.
